I think they're trying to push the notion that if you own an Xbox you should really get Windows 10, and if you own Windows 10, life would be great if you also had an Xbox. I've been noticing that subtle(?) slant from them since the Win10 launch.

This. Microsoft wants everyone to own Windows 10 AND an Xbox One, not just one or the other. That's why they refuse to release new Halo games on PC. Halo is the killer app for the Xbox.

Remember too, cdkeys.com has it for $35.

Wtf, that's damn cheap for pre-release. How reliable/sketchy is cdkeys.com?

Aka, are they trying to outdo G2A in their shadiness?

cdkeys.com isn't even listed on isthereanydeal.com, come on now.

Hrm, they also want a cell phone number to send a code to.

I've purchased numerous keys (pre-orders and otherwise) from cdkeys.com and never had any issues. Delivered on time (or earlier), activated fine and never revoked.

Much of the controversy surrounding "gray market" sites stems from a few isolated incidents involving marketplaces where random users can sell keys (specifically, the G2A and Kinguin marketplaces). cdkeys is not a marketplace. You're buying keys directly from the company that runs the site.

Back on topic, that Nvidia footage actually made me want to play the game now. The console footage that was shown previously was slow and boring but this PC footage actually reminds me of Quake. They should have showed this a lot earlier.

It was a great RPG, but it was so horrendously broken on release that I'm sure nobody was really surprised when it didn't sell well.

It was even more galling that the game had been done for over a year (since they had to wait for HL2 to come out first), and they fixed absolutely jack shit in that timespan...


Yeah, without the community fixes the game would have been a blip on gaming history radar. Still, everyone's been waiting for this for a long time. Let's hope they don't drop the ball.

Nah, that's not true. Most of the people who played Bloodlines did so without any of the community fixes. I played the game at launch and thought it was awesome even with all the jank.

Procedural Fallout/Skyrim would be the best thing to happen to videogaming.

Not sure how you can say that after experiencing the procedural quests in Skyrim and FO4. Generic, forgettable and extremely half-assed quests are not the best thing to happen to gaming. I'll take lovingly hand-crafted quests (ala Witcher 3) over procedurally-generated drivel (Skyrim/FO4) any day.

The inherent problem with procedurally-generated content is that being technically "unique" doesn't make something interesting or compelling. Games that rely on procedural generation aren't remembered for their level or quest design. They're remembered for their systems and mechanics and Bethesda isn't exactly good at either of those things. Instead, Bethesda's RPGs are known for their large, detailed worlds that are fun and interesting to explore and that's only because they're hand-crafted. Take that away and you have a lackluster action game with weak RPG elements and lousy writing.

Very much enjoyed the first one, but there was a HUGE dichotomy between the "Kill everyone" and "Kill No one" paths. In that the first one was fun as hell, and had awesome powers, and the second path was basically a big, boring snooze.

Needless to say, in DH2, I'll be slaughtering everyone like cattle.

Eh, speak for yourself. I went pure stealth (didn't kill or pacify anyone) and I found it very entertaining. But then, I enjoy pure stealth. Trying to figure out how to complete objectives without being detected and without neutralizing anyone provides a lot of interesting challenges. Killing/knocking people out in a stealthy manner is generally boring because it's so easy, especially when you can teleport and pause time.

Hyped. Kind of disappointing that they went with two protagonists instead of just Emily when she's clearly the focus. Most likely a marketing decision, as Bethesda probably didn't think a game with only a female lead would sell.

Looks pretty cool. And pretty too. Too bad the premise of the story is so awful that Im probably not going to play it simply because I can't stand such sorry world building. The "augmented" are segregated and a new apartheid reigns supreme? Sounds like hogwash to me. Think about it for a second. Only the rich would be able to afford such gadetry and technology if it were ever to appear, and only the rich would control it. Makes no sense that the "augmented" are the oppressed and the downtrodden. If there is one thing I can't stand in Sci-Fi its a faulty premise, and this one is broken-beyond-repair faulty...

It started that way, the rich / well-off having the augs, but then they became more affordable. And at the end of the last game the augs were hacked and everyone with them started experiencing hallucinations and going on violent rampages. So that why the non-augmented are segregating them now. Might be worth reading up on things before you declare them broke-beyond-repair faulty.

Hmm, well that makes a bit of sense I guess.

Did you really gripe about the premise of the sequel and essentially threaten to boycott it without even beating the previous game?

You're only as good as your last game and for all intents and purposes, Daikatana was Romero's last game. That's one of the classic examples of games utterly failing to live up to the hype so I'm not sure why anyone would give him money now based on, well, hype.

That said, it's possible that he could redeem himself. Everybody hated Harvey Smith after DX:IW until he made Dishonored.

Multiplayer feels like Halo but single-player might be good. Looks better than Doom 3, at least, though Shadow Warrior 2 looks superior in almost every regard.

Hehehe.

I don't mind, to be honest, because now I don't have to choose between Uncharted 4 and this.

I've played Mirrors Edge but I haven't played a single Uncharted game, though I have seen playthroughs of each.

Having said that it's no contest, Uncharted is in a different league to Mirrors Edge even if EA doesn't mess it up with their usual crap.



They aren't even in the same genre. Uncharted is a shooter with platforming elements. Mirror's Edge is a pure platformer with occasional melee combat. ME:C doesn't even let you use guns. From a platforming perspective, ME is leagues better than Uncharted.

They really need to fix the load times. They are ridiculous, even on a SSD. For a game that encourages retries (because of the time trials), the load times are unacceptably long. Hopefully they're using the extra time to improve them but I doubt it.

I didn't care for the beta, but Halo's slow movement speed, regenerating health, relative player vulnerability, and atypical weapons were no where to be seen. I honestly don't see where the Halo comparison is coming from, unless its just a generic way of saying "I didn't like it."

Nailed it.

Halo was a FPS console hit...DOOM needs to be hated...we hate consoles ??? DOOM = Halo

Compared to Quake's speed, DOOM feels like Halo. Doom also has a two-weapon limit, which I believe Halo introduced and made standard. Any multiplayer game by id will be judged by Quake standards and DOOM doesn't measure up.

I'm holding out on this until I hear some reviews of the combat system. First game was good but the combat system was very shallow and tedious.

Really? I didn't think it was shallow at all. What specifically did you dislike about it?

Code: APR20
Brings the full game price down to $48 at GMG if any of you thinking of grabbing it.
Or $39.99 from DLgamer
Although I've never used that site before.

That site looks a little too good to be true. Any notions on where I could check to see if it's legit?

It's listed on Isthereanydeal.com so I'm pretty sure it's fine. That said, all the controversy over "grey market" sites is overblown. I've purchased numerous games from sites like cdkeys, g2a and kinguin and I've never had issues. Keys were delivered on time, activated fine and were never revoked. G2A and Kinguin have marketplaces where third-party sellers can sell stuff and that's where the rare cases of revoked keys have occurred but if you buy directly from G2A or Kinguin, you won't have any problems.

The dev has had a lot of interesting ideas in their previous games, though they've faltered from a mechanical standpoint. Technomancer still looks pretty clunky, though it is a big step up from Mars: War Logs. I'll probably pick it up on sale.

I will note that if you only care about progressing and don't care about scoring or optional content, you should probably wait for all the episodes to be released before diving in. The replayability of the game depends entirely on your interest in completing challenges and contracts and figuring out all the different ways to kill targets. There are also a lot of cool side-stories and characters that you can only discover through repeated playthroughs.

But if you're the kind of player who beats a Hitman level once and never plays it again, you should probably wait.

This could be interesting if it has some character development/creation/progress, maybe even some basic weapon crafting. Perhaps along the lines of a cyberpunk ARPG.

Though if it's just about running around shooting with whatever weapon you buy/pickup I'm not sure how long I'd stay with it and it wouldn't be high on my list.



I don't really feel that every genre needs to have RPG elements. Hotline Miami had none and it was great.

This worth a buy yet? Still on the fence...


I've been paying no mind to this Episode stuff, other than looking at comments now and then.

Until it's "complete" I don't intend on even trying it.

The last thing I want is for yet more games to go episodic.

This. Making this game episodic felt like a desperate decision having to do with deadlines. I lost interest in HITMAN (caps ftw!) the moment the news came out.

I'll probably get a little bit excited when it's complete -- sending the proper message when I buy it, in the process.

Going episodic actually works pretty well for Hitman. The Paris level was huge and had tons of replayability. Being episodic encourages you to replay levels instead of just moving on to the next and there's more than enough content in Paris to last you 20+ hours.

As a big Hitman fan, I too was skeptical about the new format but it works.
